for this new building are here today. those who had the idea for it, those who designed it, those who donated or lent the funds to ensure its construction, the builders, and those who will benefit from it. some will speak today or be formally recognized, but in the tradition of this corner, and what has happened here for so long, people coming together, i want all of you now to turn to one another and congratulate yourselves. shake your neighbor's hand and say thank you for making this possible. thank you. this coming together would not be that, namely a coming together, if we did not hear from one of our guests.
